The Holiday Season is coming and we all know that it is one of the busiest time of the year as well. New plans with friends and family, going out on vacations and the most traditional one, the Grand Dinner Party. To have a safe and healthy Thanksgiving dinner, we have to make sure that our food menu is designed in such a way that it is favorable for both two-legged and four-legged fellows. In today’s blog, we are going to tell what thanksgiving treats you can share with your cat.
Thanksgiving Treats You Can Share
Congratulations! A small portion of Turkey happens to be completely edible and delicious for felines. In spite of the fact that Turkey is extremely rich in proteins and essential fats, you should pay a close attention while serving as the fattier parts of the turkey are more likely to cause the upset stomach.
Salads are great for all! Same for cats as well. You can add additional toppings of chicken pieces as well to make it a chicken salad. Keep in mind, do not add any dressings, herbs, oil and the meat should be boneless, white, and unseasoned as well.
Pumpkins are the rich source of fiber and you can add pumpkin in your cat’s regular diet as well. Pumpkin juice is especially healthy for cats facing digestive system disorders. A limited amount of unseasoned pumpkin should be serves as it contains high sugar levels and other sweet ingredients.
Potatoes are always the part of our overall meal in some way. And it is quite difficult to eliminate it but don’t you worry as they are safe for cats to eat. Plain and unseasoned mashed potatoes will be a great treat for cats as they are a rich source of fibers and can improve the digestion cycle.
Food to avoid
In addition to that, we are also providing a list of food and beverages you cannot share with your feline friends as sometimes the most loving thing you can do is keep it to yourself.
Turkey Bones and Skin (as they require only that protein part and bones can splinter in their throat and may upset the cat’s stomach as well.)
Gravy (as it contains the excessive amount of salt, spices, sauces and it may cause several stomach and dehydration problems.)
Bread (as bread introduces a high risk of Heinz body anemia in cats.)
Alcohol (a single sip of alcohol is enough to cause toxicity in cats.)
